Google raises concerns with purchase of 'strong' artificial intelligence developer - allvoices

Google raises concerns with purchase of 'strong' artificial intelligence developer - allvoices | Technology | Scoop.it

Google has been (relatively) quietly snapping up a grab bag of companies over the past year, ranging from home automation purveyors Nest to robot dog revolutionaries Boston Dynamics. Their latest purchase, “strong” artificial intelligence experimenters DeepMind, has more than a few people scratching their heads.

Scientists See Advances in Deep Learning, a Part of Artificial Intelligence

Scientists See Advances in Deep Learning, a Part of Artificial Intelligence | Technology | Scoop.it

Using an artificial intelligence technique inspired by theories about how the brain recognizes patterns, technology companies are reporting startling gains in fields as diverse as computer vision, speech recognition and the identification of promising new molecules for designing drugs.

 

The advances have led to widespread enthusiasm among researchers who design software to perform human activities like seeing, listening and thinking. They offer the promise of machines that converse with humans and perform tasks like driving cars and working in factories, raising the specter of automated robots that could replace human workers.

 

The technology, called deep learning, has already been put to use in services like Apple’s Siri virtual personal assistant, which is based on Nuance Communications’ speech recognition service, and in Google’s Street View, which uses machine vision to identify specific addresses.

Nicholas Smith's curator insight, March 22, 2013 6:45 AM

This article talks about advances made in deep learning, a part of artificial intelligence. This is quite an interesting article as deep learning is the technology which Apple's Siri uses and Google's Street View uses.

 

The interesting concept of deep learning is 'recognition', for example Apple's Siri voice recognition. It is absolutely extraordinary to think that an AI is able to recognize somebody when they speak and react to that person's command or question. Even with such amazing breakthroughs like Siri, in ten to fifteen years, we are most likely going to see more voice recognition programs in GPS's, phones and many more devices.

 

Deep learning is an extremely interesting and complex system. This source provides a decent insight into deep learning and artificial intelligent and was extremely helpful with my research topic.

Deep learning is one of the subjects I need to dig deeper in.

The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence

The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence | Technology | Scoop.it

The advances we’ve seen in the past few years—cars that drive themselves, useful humanoid robots, speech recognition and synthesis systems, 3D printers,Jeopardy!-champion computers—are not the crowning achievements of the computer era. They’re the warm-up acts. As we move deeper into the second machine age we’ll see more and more such wonders, and they’ll become more and more impressive.

 

How can we be so sure? Because the exponential, digital, and recombinant powers of the second machine age have made it possible for humanity to create two of the most important one-time events in our history: the emergence of real, useful artificial intelligence (AI) and the connection of most of the people on the planet via a common digital network.

 

Either of these advances alone would fundamentally change our growth prospects. When combined, they’re more important than anything since the Industrial Revolution, which forever transformed how physical work was done.

Title: The Dawn of the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Author: Erik Brynjolfson and Andrew McAfee

Main Idea: How artificial intelligence is gaining popularity in the world

Summary:

1) The technology ranges from smart phones to hearing aids and much, much, more.

2) The world is beginning to industrialize and expand more in technology

3) It's believed that in the future everything will be automated

Opinion: No, its filled with facts about the present and hypotheses about the future

Question: Is the advancement in technology a good or bad thing? Will it make people more lazy in the future?

Is this article important to science?: Yes, because its beneficial to people who are interested in knowing about the future of technology.

Processors That Work Like Brains Will Accelerate Artificial Intelligence

Processors That Work Like Brains Will Accelerate Artificial Intelligence | Technology | Scoop.it

A new breed of computer chips that operate more like the brain may be about to narrow the gulf between artificial and natural computation—between circuits that crunch through logical operations at blistering speed and a mechanism honed by evolution to process and act on sensory input from the real world. Advances in neuroscience and chip technology have made it practical to build devices that, on a small scale at least, process data the way a mammalian brain does. These “neuromorphic” chips may be the missing piece of many promising but unfinished projects in artificial intelligence, such as cars that drive themselves reliably in all conditions, and smartphones that act as competent conversational assistants.
